(2)The first assignment of the lease that is not relieved from tax by virtue of any of the provisions specified in sub-paragraph (4), and in relation to which the assignee does not acquire the lease as a bare trustee of the assignor, is treated for the purposes of this Act as if it were the grant of a lease by the assignor—

(a)for a term equal to the unexpired term of the lease referred to in sub-paragraph (1), and

(b)on the same terms as those on which the assignee holds the lease after the assignment.

(3)Sub-paragraph (2) does not apply where an assignment of a lease, but for the application of that sub-paragraph, would be relieved from tax by virtue of Schedule 11 (alternative finance investment bonds).

(a)Schedule 9 (sale and leaseback relief);

(b)paragraphs 13 and 15 of Schedule 11 (alternative finance investment bond relief);

(f)paragraph 1 of Schedule 20 (relief for certain acquisitions involving public bodies).

(6)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (5), “"disqualifying event”” means—

(a)in relation to the withdrawal of group relief, the event falling within paragraph 8(2)(a) of Schedule 16 (buyer ceasing to be a member of the same group as the seller) as read with paragraph 9 of that Schedule;
